Emtan Karmiel, an Israeli small-arms manufacturer for military and law enforcement use presented 3 new firearms at the Defense & Security Thailand exhibition. New products from Emtan are AR-15/M16 pattern rifles, chambered in 7.62 mm x 39 (MZ-47), 5,56 mm x 45 (MZ-4P) and .300AAC Blackout (MZ-300).
The MZ-47 is a 7,62 mm x 39 automatic weapon compatible with the AK standard magazine, available in two barrel lengths – 11,5″ and 14,5″. Both lengths feature upper and lower case aluminum 7075 T6 material with 650-850 RPM rate of fire, front and rear flip-up sights, hard chrome-lined bore and rifling with 6 grooves RH and 1 twist in 9,45”, and an optional ambidextrous charging handle. The MZ-47 is available also in a semi-automatic version.
MZ-47 is guided towards the countries that have a large supply of 7,62 mm x 39 ammunition, but want upgrade from outdated AK pattern rifles
The MZ-4P with Piston Operation System is a 5,56 mm x 45 NATO automatic rifle compatible with AR-15/M16 pattern magazines, and is available in two barrel lengths – 11,5″ and 14,5″. Both lengths feature upper and lower case aluminum 7075 T6 material and an advanced Piston Operation System eliminating gas exiting at the rear of the rifle, even when using a suppressor.
MZ-45 (above) is a piston operated rifle, that makes it a good supressor host because of the lack of excess gasses escaping from the chamber into shooters face. MZ-4 is the previous product of Emtan, DI operated featuring a 20
The MZ-300 is a 7,62 mm x 35, .300AAC Blackout automatic rifle available with optional barrel lengths of 9”, 11,5”, and 14,5”. It utilizes 5.56 mm x 45 standard bolts and magazines without any alterations. Rifles chambered in .300AAC are often considered as good suppressor hosts.
Despite marketing the MZ-300 as a supressor ready rifle, Emtan decided to choose the DI system. /Photos: Emtan Karmiel
